    The local attorney makes some good common sense statements and proposals.

    However, it was with some regret that I read over the comments of the local citizens on this article. Ignorance, anger, sarcasm, even hate: not good signs. And these people appear to be voters. It puts me in mind of a book I read a couple years back, the title says it all: “Democracy—-the God that Failed”.

      Avig, Yes, comments about SO issues does have a group that will operated mouths before engaging brains. However, I have been noting that there are more and more commenters refecting facts and concerns of the worthlessness of SO laws. People in NY are not the norm of this Country.

    Common sense…once a person is off probation/parole he/she should be free to live anywhere they damn well please. Freedom of movement and the pursuit of happiness is not possible with residency restrictions.

    I think that it is simply discrimination. They a placing a condition on a group of people that they can not change. The label of sex offender…then putting laws in place to punish them.

    Would this discrimination be allowed to any other group who has a condition they can not change? Is discrimination based on skin color legal, race, religion, sexual orientation…of course not, and yet, they have created a group that can be legally discriminated against. Sex offenders

    Un fair – Un American – inhuman and certainly cruel and unusual punishment!

    Simple as that.
